I’m a bit behind on this one, but Tennessee Tech opened up the spring signing period signing 3-star recruit (according to Rivals) DeOndre Haynes. (ESPN has Haynes listed as a 2-star recruit.)
Haynes actually verbally committed to the Golden Eagles before the November signing period, but didn’t sign a letter of intent until the spring. In between, Haynes was recruited by a few SEC schools, most notably the University of Georgia, who offered Haynes a scholarship.
At Calera High School, Haynes was named the Alabama 4A Player of the Year for three consecutive seasons.
Haynes appears to be a combo guard, at 6’3″, 170 pounds. Rivals lists Haynes as the No. 28 shooting guard in the nation, while ESPN listed Haynes as the No. 72 point guard. Regardless of which position he plays, he’ll likely have opportunities quickly with both Zac Swansey and Zach Bailey graduating from Tech’s program this year.
And kind of a kind of neat fact from Tennessee Tech’s Press Release: Haynes intends to pursue a career in coaching.
